Should my clitoris look like a penis?

Dear Dr. Reed,  My clitoris looks like a small penis.  Had a vaginoplasty elsewhere
and wonder if you can correct this?  Camila

Dear Camila,

Your photo is similar to one on our web-site  srsmiami.com/revision-of-vaginoplasty.

We have seen this a few times and usually reflects work done in the far east.  While we
have seen excellent post-op results from the same area, this situation is caused by not
removing the corona or rim of the head of the penis.  A natal clitoris also has a small rim but is
greatly reduced in size, and most surgeons will not reproduce that aspect, but focus on clitoral 
hooding, and labia minora and majora, and depth.

The remedy is to remove the rim along with the “hood” on the underside, provide
a smooth confluence of uerthra to the lower aspect of the clirotis (pink vulvar plate),
and of course provide a normal clitoral hood (top side).  We can talk further on the phone
if you wish.

Cordially,
